kennedy and republicans like president george w. bush. you don't get that matchup very often. so we know where the consensus should be. now, of course, there will be rigorous debate about many of the details. and every stake holder should engage in real give and take in the process. it is important for us to recognize the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. and if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. so the principles are pretty straightforward. there are a lot of details behind it. we're going to hand out a bunch of paper so everybody will know what we're talking about. but the principles are pretty straightforward. first, i believe we need to stay focused on enforcement. that means continuing to strengthen security at our borders. it means cracking down more forcefully on businesses that knowingly hire undocumented workers. to be fair, most businesses want to do the right thing, but a lot of them have a hard time figuring out who is here legally, who's not, s

role? >> well, she promoted smart power, meaning after george w. bush and the iraq war sending troops abroad. finding other ways to achieve goals in the war on terror. she's largely been the voice of the women's movement around the world. talking about democracy and women's issues. she's beloved by feminists and holds a feminist role of global stature and i think most significantly in the end she is just very well liked by presidents and prime ministers and our own u.s. military. i mean, talk to the generals and talk to the admirals. they all have great respect for her. she has promoted the internet and facebook, twitter as tools in diplomacy and foreign policy making, probably more than any other person working in our government. >> sounds like a very modern secretary of state but does come at a price in benghazi and that hearing she had where she said, does it really matter what happened on the ground? this will come back to haunt her no matter what she does. >> if she runs for president, though some of the sound bites from the hearings will obviously be used by her republican oppon

, when president george w. bush was in office. that didn't last long. go back to president ronald reag reagan, republicans talking about the reagan revolution. from eight years of reagan, four years of bush, eight years of clinton, eight years of bush, that reagan's vision, if you will, sort of dominated the conversation. here's what speaker boehner has to understand. look on the state level, republican governors and state legislatures. you have republicans who control more state branches than they actually do democrats, and so this is just typical political whining as will said, both sides want to be in control. it's no doubt because you want to govern a lot easier, if your party controls all levels of political office. >> carol can we talk about what inspired boehner's statement? and that is that president obama's speech was openly progressive, not just on its face on its policy goals like you pointed out in climate change or gun control but in its philosophy as well. >> and? >> the elevation of collectiveism, of collective right, collective action. this is the cycle of american poli

presidential nominee. he got close and lost ohio and the incumbent president george w. bush was not elected president, but was close. not that many votes. he was close at that time. he has been a senator all of these years and now going to be the secretary of state. i don't think there is any doubt they will confirm him and he will go smoothly. >> you said relatively smoothly. you think the confirmation is expected? >> yes, the confirmation is expected. it will be overwhelming and a handful who vote against him if that, but he will be different next week when chuck hagel is the nominee for the defense secretary. that will be a lot more brutal as far as the q&a given his controversial positions. i suspect that hagel will be confirmed as well. >> let's talk about the two key personnel moves we are awaiting the announcement of at the white house about to come from the white house. tell us about that. >> mary jo white in new york spent years as the u.s. attorney and she is very, very tough. the president is going to nominate her to head the sec securities and exchange commission. that's

benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut which killed over 200 marines. and frankly whether it was called a terrorist attack or not, in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we just have to make sure that it never happens again, so that in the future our people are protected. that's what i want to get out of all of this. so, madam secretary, we commend you for accepting all of the arb recommendations and welcome your commitment to begin implementing them by the time you leave the department. even before the arb submitted its conclusions, the department moved to address certain shortcomings through its increased security proposal, vast majority of the funding for this proposal would come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. and i hope congress will move without delay to give the department the transfer authority it needs to start applying these changes. it is important to remember that security is not a one off end

including george w. bush. >> legal immigration is one of the top concerns of the american people. congress' fail ture to act is a disappointment. >> reporter: obama did announce hess administration would stop deporting some young undocumented immigrant but was taken to task at a town hall for not doing something bigger. >> you promised that. a promise is a promise. with all due respect -- >> what i promised was that i would work every single day as hard as i can to make sure that everybody in this country, regardless of who they are, what they look like, where they come from they'd have a fair shot at american dream. >> reporter: still, hispanic americans, the fastest growing voter bloc, helped propel obama to a second term. a wake-up call for republicans. >> i do know there are a lot of democrats in congress who once and for all want to solve this problem, fix this mess, a broken immigration system, and many of always degree with that. >> want to bring in brianna keilar from the white house. first of all, president bush, was frustrated in covering the president, he tried so hard
